Bellydance Party in Fredericksburg for Hope House

March/April 2016 Session Begins March 7!

We're starting the next session of classes at Strictly Ballroom in Fredericksburg, VA this Monday, March 7. Both classes will learn choreography during the March/April session to perform at my 5th annual fundraiser hafla on Saturday, May 7.

The 7 pm "Continuing Bellydance" class is for Intermediate level and above. "Intro and Essentials" at 8 pm is suitable for beginners and advanced beginners. If you are new to classes with me and are unsure about which level is right for you, please contact me and let me know what dance training you already have.

The fee for all seven classes is $75, paid on March 7. You can still drop in for one class for $15, but $75 for seven is a much better deal! There is no class on April 6. Arrive 10-15 minutes before class on the first night of the session to sign up at the front desk.

Q: What if I can't attend March 7, but still want to learn the choreography?
A: Your best option is to sign up for the full session, even if you have to miss a class. Not only is it less expensive than paying for the remaining classes individually, if you sign up for all seven, I will put you on the class mailing list right away. You will receive video clips for practicing as well as song information.

Q: Where is Strictly Ballroom?
A: I have instructions with photos here on my site.

Q: I'm not sure I want to perform. Is it required to be in the class?
A: Performing is not required. I like to provide opportunities for students to share what they have learned, but it is optional.

Hope you can join us!
